Verisys Joins Prasco and Boston Cares to Volunteer at an Elementary School in Conjunction with NACDS TSE
This past weekend as Verisys Team members gathered in Boston for NACDS Total Store Expo, they had the privilege of joining Prasco and Boston Cares for a day of service. Valerie Mondelli, Verisys CRO, and Lauren Howard, VP of Sales at Verisys, were among the many volunteers who took part in this worthwhile event. Patrick J. Kennedy Elementary School in East Boston was given a beautiful makeover just prior to back to school. The playground was painted, benches were built, mulching and planting were done, and the families of the students were invited to have dinner with the volunteers that evening. All of this was made possible by the generous sponsorship of Prasco in conjunction with Boston Cares and NACDS. Our team was honored to be invited to take part in giving back to this small community while in Boston.
Prasco, a Verisys partner, is a pharmaceutical manufacturer and one of the fastest-growing companies in the generic industry. Prasco has helped to establish a new category that has since fueled the company’s growth, brought brand quality products to the generic segment, and saved patients billions of dollars. Their 4 corporate values (ISEE) say a lot about the way they operate:
- Improve daily both personally and professionally
- Serve God, family, customers, partners, fellow employees, and global community
- Execute tasks with excellence to exceed our daily goals
- Energize others daily with our prayers and our passion for what we do and believe
Boston Cares’ mission is to mobilize and train individual and corporate volunteers to strengthen communities and improve the lives of people in need. They partner with schools and nonprofits with needs that can be filled by these volunteer teams. On an annual basis, 70,000+ hours of service are rendered by 11,000 adults, teens, children, and corporate partners at almost 200 schools and nonprofit organizations in the greater Boston area.
